Prerequisites
Lab ActivitiesIn this lab, the students find solutions to the one dimensional time independent Schrodinger equation using software that employs a fourth order RungeKutta numerical integration method. Where possible, they are asked to compare the results to theory or other known values. Four specific situations are examined:
The computer program is written in True Basic and the source code is provided in the lab writeup. Course LevelIntroductory: P17, P23, P24 Student Handouts
